Manually Create Offsite Copy Of Base Full Backup
I just setup an offsite network storage drive for offsite backups. The whole thing works pretty good, except that I use incremental backup, and the first full backup is over 100 GB, which just isn't feasible to transfer over a 20 Mbps connection.
Here is my question: If I manually copy and paste the full backup onto my network storage drive via a portable hard drive, will system recovery honor that copy and just continue on with the incremental backups? In other words, I would put the inital full backup on the network drive manually.
Just wondering if anyone out there has any best practices that would be helpful.
